Brittany Wang

Worship Director

Life has come full circle for Brittany, from growing up in Trinity to now serving on staff. Long before getting her degree in Contemporary Music & Recording at Eastern Nazarene College, the Lord set a passion in her for inspiring and drawing generations to a deeper relationship with Christ through the Word and musical worship. After four great years of doing this as Trinity’s Youth Director, Brittany has continued to live out this passion as Trinity’s Worship Director since June 2016. Brittany feels humbled and honored to give back to the church family that gave so much to her and helped set such a foundation for her faith. She is also very blessed to be able to serve frequently with her equally passionate, supportive husband, Ben.
